Cain accuser: Candidate has 'complete amnesia'

A Chicago-area woman who accused presidential candidate Herman Cain of groping her when she went to him for help in finding a job says Cain is lying about remembering her.

Cain told reporters Tuesday that he had never seen Sharon Bialek (BEYE'-uh-lihk) before a news conference at which she accused him of inappropriate conduct 14 years ago. Bialek says that's not true.

Bialek told WFLD-TV in Chicago on Wednesday that Cain has "complete amnesia." She says, "Pathological liars usually do those kinds of things."

Bialek adds that she hasn't decided whether to participate in a joint news conference with the three other women who have accused Cain of sexual impropriety. The attorney for another accuser, Karen Kraushaar, has said he hopes to have all four women appear.
